Labels and packaging specialist OPM Group has completed a £2.6m investment in new technology to improve its service provision and facilitate growth.

The group has invested in a 14-colour FA-4 flexographic press with de-/relamination, UV-lamination, and multiple die units, additional value-adding units for screen, hot foil, cold foil, embossing, in-setting and cross-over printing.

The new press strengthens OPM’s capabilities in multi-ply labels. Allowing production of a four-ply label in a single pass in up to ten colours, utilising different substrates in one label to control weight and thickness.

It is the perfect answer to adding space to the label when the size of the label cannot be enlarged.

The press also boasts Martin Automation MBS automatic butt splicer and LRD automatic transfer rewind to enhance lean manufacturing standards. Also featured is AVT Helios 6 System for 100% automated inline inspection solution.

In addition, significant upgrades have also been completed in 2018 to existing presses to expand the high quality and efficient label and flexible packaging production capabilities offered to customers. Upgrades have included Martin Automation and AVT Helios 6 Systems added to all presses and finishing equipment.

OPM has a strong reputation for quality and innovation in the multi-ply label sector, which is highly valued by Specialist Packaging Pharma & Healthcare brand owners and these significant upgrades strengthen this proposition.

Our products are as individual as the needs of our customers. Therefore we direct our production skills and know-how towards providing tailored solutions.

This significant investment increases capacity and further develops our capabilities in performance labels and packaging and sustainable solutions,” said the company.

OPM Group is a manufacturer of complex self-adhesive labels constructions and a flexible packaging specialist.
